NOTES

Quorum

The quorum for the AGM is one shareholder present (in person or by proxy) entitled to vote upon the business to be transacted. If a quorum is not present within half an hour of the time appointed for the AGM, or if during the AGM a quorum ceases to be present, the AGM will stand adjourned until 10:00 am (Irish time) on 16 June 2021 without any further notice to Shareholders. The quorum at the adjourned meeting shall be one shareholder present (in person or by proxy) at the adjourned meeting. The resolutions will be proposed at the adjourned meeting in the same manner as described above.

Entitlement to attend and vote

Please note that you are only entitled to attend and vote at the AGM (or any adjournment thereof) if you are a registered shareholder or a holder of Subscriber Shares (as defined in the Constitution) (together the Shareholder(s)). As the funds in the Company use the International Central Securities Depositary (ICSD) model of settlement and Citivic Nominees Limited is the sole registered shareholder of shares in the funds under the ICSD settlement model, investors in the Funds should submit their voting instructions through the relevant ICSD or the relevant participant in an ICSD (such as a local central securities depositary, broker or nominee). If any investor has invested in a fund through a broker/dealer/other intermediary, the investor should contact this entity to provide voting instructions.

Appointment of proxies

A form of proxy is enclosed with this notice of AGM for use by a Shareholder. As mentioned above, investors in the Funds who are not the Shareholders should submit their voting instructions through the relevant ICSD or the relevant participant in an ICSD (such as a local central securities depositary, broker or nominee), instead of using the form of proxy attached hereto.

To be effective, the form of proxy duly completed and executed, together with a copy of the power of attorney or other authority under which it is executed must be deposited by the Shareholder at the offices of the office of the Company Secretary, Goodbody Secretarial Limited, IFSC, North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland, so as to be received before the time fixed for holding the meeting or any adjournment thereof or (in the case of a poll taken otherwise than at or on the same day as the AGM or adjourned meeting) before the time fixed for the taking of the poll at which it is to be used. Any alteration to the form of proxy must be initialled by the person who signs it.

TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS UNDER COVID 19 AND PROPOSED ACTION TO BE TAKEN
